Charles Leclerc Tight-Lipped on Ferrari Problems as FP2 Running Wiped Out
Ferrari driver remains optimistic despite electrical issue during FP2 at British Grand Prix
Charles Leclerc’s Friday practice session at the British Grand Prix was cut short due to an electrical issue on his Ferrari, but he remained positive about the team’s prospects for the weekend. Leclerc’s performance in recent races has raised expectations at Ferrari, with a major upgrade package introduced at the Spanish Grand Prix and a strong showing in Austria where he challenged Max Verstappen for pole position.
During the opening practice session at Silverstone, Leclerc secured the fifth-fastest time, while his teammate Carlos Sainz finished seventh. Ferrari was widely expected to be the closest challenger to Red Bull at the British Grand Prix. However, just before the start of FP2, Ferrari announced that Leclerc’s car had developed an electrical problem, forcing him to miss the session.
